A Georgia man went on a rampage yesterday at a Walmart outside of Atlanta, smashing dozens of flat-screen televisions with a baseball bat he found in the store.
The man, 23-year-old Westley Strellis, bashed in 29 flat-screen televisions worth $22,000, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution. He was charged with a whopping 29 counts of criminal damage to property.
Strellis invoked his Fifth Amendment right to stay mum, so his motive remains a mystery. According to the police report, when officers arrived on the scene, Strellis was sitting in an aisle in the store's electronics department. When approached, he held out his wrists, signaling for the officer to handcuff him. Police found a bottle of Effexor XR, an anti-depressant, in Strellis's possession.

The fact that he was carrying a prescription bottle WITH him leads me to believe he must have taken SOMETHING. It may have been his medicine, or he used his medicine bottle to carry OTHER pills or a substance. I think its obvious that the guy is mentally ill, but I would love to know why he did it.
